not work .properly to throw off the uric acid poison ;
consequently uric acid crystals are deposited in and
about the joints, in the muscles, where anv inflam
mation is set up in the nearby tissues.
Hague has said, that gout, is rheumatism, and
rheumatism is gout." If uric acid is formed in excess
witriin the body it is passed on to the kidneys, which
act as a filter to pass off this poison. If the excess is
not excreted' by the kidneys, it is distributed thru the
tissues. The choice sites for such storage are in rhf
joints, muscle -sheaths, where the circulation is weak weakest,
est, weakest, and where also the alkalinity of the blood is lowest..
Consequently we must do everylhitig to throw ofJtmT'
uric acid poison, and simple methoasare bestFlush
the kidneys by drinking- six to eight glasses of water
between meals. During winter months the circulation
is apt to be sluggish and the blood stream retarded.
Eat less meat, drink more -water, and take Anuric
(double or triple strength), after each meal and'af"
bed time for several weeks at a time and you will be
free from uric acid and the diseases that follow.
The urine is often cloudy, full of sediment;
channels often get sore and sleep is disturbed two
or three times a night. This is the time you should

Literature in the Trenches
Do you think the boy's in the
trenches read poetry and Shakspere?
Well, Lieut. Coningsby Dawsoni who
wrote the new war story "Carry On,"
says they prefer "The Lives of the
Notorious Pirates." He says its the
same with the trench songs, that no
one ever sings a patriotic song; they
prefer a song that burlesques their
own heroism. One of their favorites
is "The Complaint of the Conscien
tious Objector," which Dawson ; won wonders
ders wonders why has not' reached our ears
before.. V Picture them, a company of
mud-stained men in steel helmets
plodding their way under intermittent
shelling through a 't battered trench,
whistling and humming the following
'Send us the army and the naw. Send
us the rank and file.
Send us the grand old territorials,

Where are the boys of ttfe old bri

You may send my mother, my sister

But for Gawd's sake don't send me."
And always this last line is shout
It's all a mad burlesque of the
splendid things that are being done
a parody of the fineness which our
men are living.
This is a take-off on the song "A
Little Bit of Heaven":
"A little piece of shrapnel fell from
out the sky one day,
It fell upon a soldier in a field not far
And when they went to findhim he
was bust beyond repair,
So they pulled his legs and arms off
and they left him lying there.
Then they buried him in Flanders
just to make the new crops
He'll make the best manure they say
and. sure they ought to know.
And they put a little cross up, which
bore his name so grand
On the day he made his farewell for
a better promised land!"

How the Marburys Came
to Change Their
By ESTHER VAN DE VEER.
This story is by a crusty old bachelor
who knows nothing of married life.
He says he is tired of hearing women
say that the best way to manage a
man is to feed him well.
Mrs. Marbury had married for love
and when coming to middle age still
loved her husband. But it is an un
disputed fact that persons who are
closely allied become careless of what
thes, say to each other and give way
to fretfulness at slight provocations,
while with others they put a guard on
their tongues. Frank Marbury was a
man not to be easily ruffled and real realized
ized realized that he had a nervous wife. So
when she lost her self control he re retained
tained retained his own and soothed her as
best he could.
But persons who are unrestrained
and do not restrain themselves usually
grow worse instead of better. Mrs.
Marbury was continually getting upset
over some trifle and at such times
would berate her husband unmerci unmercifully,
fully, unmercifully, complaining that of all men he
was the hardest for a woman to live
with. Finally one day during one of
her explosions she ,told him that she
could endure him no longer. Marbury
concluded that she must be curbed
and took his own way of curbing her.
The day after the outburst he came
home and told 4ier that he intended
to set up housekeeping on lifs own
account. He had rented a furnished
house and would move In at once. Mrs.
Marbury looked at him, surprised, but
made no objection.
"Will you keep a servant?" she asked.
"I don't know. I shall leave the
management to my housekeeper."
"Who will be your housekeeper V
"I have not engaged one yet I shall
begin by cooking some of my meals
myself at home; for others I shall go
out to restaurants."
Marbury ha'd a fancy for cooking
and had often supplied the place of a
cook at home when one was not to be
hired. Servants were becoming scarcer
every day, and he was becoming more
valuable on that account. Mrs. Mar Marbury
bury Marbury did not have the knack of cook cookery.
ery. cookery. She had tried to learn the art.
but was not made that way. The. fact
that she was to lose a cook as well as
a husband angered her. She flounced
out of the room without a word.
Marbury kept his word. He remov removed
ed removed what he most needed to hls-new res residence,
idence, residence, removing himself there at the
same time. Mrs. Marbury made no ef effort
fort effort to bring about a reconciliation.
When her husband was about to leave
he called up from the lower hall.
"Goodby.-dearr But, though she heard
him distinctly and found it difficult to
refrain from going down, throwing her
arms about him and retaining him. she
gave him no reply. 1
One of the first things, Mrs. Marbury
did when she found herself alone was
to hunt for a servant who could cook.
She finally found a woman to whom
she agreed to pay three times as much
as she had paid a cook when she was
a bride, but the first dinner that came
on to the table afforded quite ,enough
of her help's handicraft, and the wo woman
man woman was discharged.
Mrs. Marbury hired three cooks
within a fortnight at 'fabulous prices
and sent them all away. She dined at
restaurants and tried occasionally at
getting a meal herself. She loathed
restaurant cooking, and sitting down
alone to a meal she had spoiled was
intolerable. Under the stress her stom stomach
ach stomach was giving out. and her condition
was pitiable, x ;
One morning the postman delivered a
note to her bearing her husband's well
known chirography on' the envelope.
She was delighted. "He's given in,"
she cried, tearing the note in her haste
to open it It read:
Mr. Francis Marbury requests the pres-
, ence of Mrs. Marion Marbury to dinner
this evening. No R. S. V. P. needed. The
dinner will be served promptly at 7 o'clock.
Mrs. Marbury was puzzled. What
did it mean? Of one thing she was
sure she would get an excellent din
ner. But that was the only thing of
which she was sure.
At two minutes of 7 Mrs. Marbury
drove up in a taxicab to her husband's
residence. She tried the front door.
and, finding it unlocked, shewalked in.
A savory odor pervaded the premises.
Passing to the (ear, she entered' the
kitchen., Mr.' Marbury, In a white lin

turned from the range. K
Aha,- my dear!" he said cheerily.
"I thought you might like one of. my
dinners. I've quite a delicate menu-
little neck clams, mock turtle soup, a
"Stopr cried Mrs. Marbury. "I'm
starving, and you make me a thousand
times more ravenous!"
"Go and lay aside your traps while
I dish up."
Mrs. Marbury flung aside her "traps'
and played, scullion till the dinner was
served, then sat down with her hus
band and enjoyed the first good meal
she had eaten since her husband had
left her. It seemed that every morsel
that passed down her throat had been
'meant for a god. When the meal was
finished he told her husband that she
had reformed and if he would come
back to her she would never again
complain of anything he did.
"No," he said, ."you are welcome to
come acd live with me, but IH never
co back to you. If you find me as
hard to live with as before you can
return to your own"
The words were stopped by a kiss.
There has been no further moving
by the Marburys.
